Statement from Pierre Lampron, president of Dairy Farmers of Canada on a NAFTA agreement

Canada NewsWire

OTTAWA, Oct.1, 2018 /CNW/ - We have been informed of the conclusion of an agreement between Canada and the United States for a renewed free-trade accord. Granting an additional market access of 3.59% to our domestic dairy market, eliminating competitive dairy classes and extraordinary measures to limit our ability to export dairy products will have a dramatic impact not only for dairy farmers but for the whole sector. This has happened, despite assurances that our government would not sign a bad deal for Canadians. We fail to see how this deal can be good for the 220,000 Canadian families that depend on dairy for their livelihood.

Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC)is the national policy, lobbying and promotional organization representing Canada's farmers. DFC strives to create stable conditions for the Canadian dairy sector, today and in the future. It works to maintain policies that foster the viability of Canadian dairy farming and promote dairy products and their health benefits.
